Mother's Day is celebrated all over the world, in different months and with various traditions. Whatever the differences, the heart of the matter is to spoil our mum and allow her to put her feet up. Younger children love to make cards for their parents; if ever you have been portrayed in such home-made offerings you will have an insight into how your child sees you. For example you may be the stick figure depicted with a triangular dress holding a bunch of flowers, a princess tiara on your head or with matching handbag and shoes. For those of us not so lucky we may get drawn either behind the wheel of a car or next to the cooker! If only they knew what we really wanted. What Kind Of Mum Are You? Mary Poppins Mum: You are always organised, pristinely turned out, your children have impeccable manners and you never forget 'Potter Day' at school ... heaven forbid! For you we suggest our Bulletin Zinfandel Rose; this Californian wine is full of sweet strawberries and raspberries with a splash of watermelon - perfect in every way. The Corporate Mum: Suited and booted with the children dropped off at school by 8.30. Running between meetings with your best stilettos without breaking a sweat. However, your downfall is your addiction to your Blackberry. Let us introduce to you Brockmans Gin; with hints of blackberry you'll feel quite at home. Earth Mum: With a deep sense of doing the right thing for your children you really are a natural. We think you'll love Forest Gin. Forest Gin is distilled next to the stunning Macclesfield Forest, the berries are foraged nearby and the ingredients are ground by hand using a pestle and mortar. A family working with nature to bring you this delightful, award winning spirit - we know you'll enjoy it as much as we do. Yummy Mummy: Oozing class and sophistication Champagne is a must. Here are some wise words from Lilly Bollinger herself;
"I drink it when I'm happy, and when I'm sad,
Sometimes I drink it when I'm alone.
When I have company I consider it obligatory.
I trifle with it if I'm not hungry, and drink it when I am,
Otherwise, I never touch it - unless I'm thirsty."Cougar Mum: Wolftrap is made for you; this South African wine is a smooth and spicy little number. Need we say more? Party Mum: With a bubbly personality you love to stand out. We would pair you up with Syn as you're both the life and soul of any social gathering. Syn is a sparkling shiraz served chilled, a true bubbly red head who knows how to get a party started with her perfume of freshly picked plums, dark chocolate and exotic spices. Soccer Mom: You provide the ultimate taxi service and wait patiently at the side of the pitch come rain or shine shouting words of encouragement to the budding Michael Owen. To wind down after a match try the Claymore YNWA Sauvignon Blanc, your son will love the picture of Bill Shankly on the wine bottle too. New Mum: Probably best to go with coffee! Whatever you get up to, everyone here at Whitmore & White wishes you a wonderful Mother's Day. Mandi
